Bookcliffs Rockslide Sunday Morning

NewsChannel 5  viewer Jeff White witnessed a huge rockslide Sunday morning on the Bookcliffs.

He was able to capture pictures of the slide. White said he was about two miles from the slide area and that it sounded like a giant explosion. He told us that when he got closer to the slide area it was hard to tell that anything had happened.

The slide happened around 8:45 am near Palisade. There have been no reports of injuries or damage and the slide did not block I-70. The Mesa County Sheriff's Office was called to the scene. 

We are talking to White and will have more on the story on NewsChannel 5 this evening.
